These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.
The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?
Earth – Temperance, Knight of Swords, Fox – Don’t get to cocky in bounding forward after my goals this week. Not all of the obstacles will be of my own making and I might need some cunning and careful planning to make things come out in my favor.
Air – The Tower, Page of Swords, Seed – Bright ideas will abound this week, but make sure you do your homework and spend the week preparing, rather than jumping on board right away, in order to ensure these ideas don’t fall apart before they can even get started.
Water – Two of Cups and Ship – You need to take this week to connect with and communicate with Gideon, and allow him to participate in finding balance for you. It’s time to open up. Stop hiding. You (and both, as well) can’t move forward until you do.
Fire – Ace of Cups and Bridge – Communication (as outlined in the previous cards in this spread) will assist in creating a reconciliation and foundation for new and better things to rise up in the weeks ahead.
Waning – Trust – You need to move away from a position of blind faith for the week ahead. Things are not going to fix themselves, and nothing is going to get resolved unless you are willing to do more than remaining inactive and waiting.
Waxing – The Three Poisons – You need to lean into self awareness this week. Accept that you have faults and take steps to mitigate their effects on not just other’s lives but also your own. This does not mean being down on yourself and your faults and beating them into submission. Instead, to defeat one’s faults requires killing them with kindness and understanding.
Take Away – Communication and allowing Gideon to dig is the theme of the week. It’s time to excavate the issues still lingering and get them out into the open, whatever those issues may be.
